Do you think that this AW season matchmaking makes any sense at all?

    How can you expect better rewards than an alliance you can not beat? This post is a nonsense. Stop beeing selfish.

    If this post is nonsense then 70% of this game is nonsense. And that includes you as well.
    Is this an insult? Moderators, pls take care of this annoying kids

    Nope. It's part of the forum rules. Always employed against those who are criticizing Iabam

    It is so interesting how things work with you guys! You don't get what you want you complain. If it is the fault of kabam you want compensation. When you get 6 star shards and open them likely as not you will come in and complain about the rng. IF by some chance it is someone you wanted you come in and complain there isn't enough gold or iso. Let anyone else make the same sorts of claims about their experiences (as long as you are happy with it) you bully and brutalize them in the forums.
    You do not care how you win only that you do win, however you seem very concerned about how others win!

    When it's for a shared prize pool and they're protected from stronger allies at the same rank to the point that they get matches 2 tiers lower to avoid a stronger closer ally, then it concerns everyone.

    Kabam could set up 2-3 levels of competition and let people choose which one to enter, but it's still lower prizes for the weaker folks in that scenario too. The main thing, I guess, is the illusion of control - do u want it to be obvious that you're getting knocked out of top prizes or do you want it to be your choice to avoid competing for them?

    Wait. You’re not getting the matches you want and you’re complaining right?

    An
    Other example of why MMing had to change - both allies finished G2 last season and were less than 500 prestige apart...



    They finished P4 last season us G2.

    I think it makes perfect sense.

    I selected no comment because I've already expressed myself, and the question is somewhat open for me. It makes sense in that I get the logic behind it. That doesn't mean the execution of changing it on a dime makes sense to me, and the idea that any Match is fair if the War Rating is the same, regardless of the variation in strengths, doesn't make a bit of sense to me at all. Actually, when I think about where it's coming from, it makes sense because I understand what's behind it. That doesn't mean I think it's right.

    No, War Rating does not mean they're equally Matched, and implying that after the system was different for 9 or 10 Seasons is just ignorant to the variations that exist.

    That’s the exact problem they are fixing right now. You’re just an unfortunate casualty who is being put in their proper place. Sucks to lose, but whether or not it was intentional through shell alliance/tanking, or just getting lucky, you’re alliance was somewhere they shouldn’t have ended up in the first place.

    I'm not actually. My Matches are fine. Other people are. That "fixing" is exactly why War Rating doesn't mean the Matches are equally Matched. People can keep brushing this off all they like because the system is "fixing", but that just makes my point for me.
    As for Tanking and Shells, they were the reason War Rating failed us to begin with. So wrong on that front as well.

    It did not prior to this season, but it is moving that way with this change. You will move up or down based on your skill of play. Will there be a little variation? Sure, but it will be no where near as bad as it was in the prior seasons.
    Prior Seasons had people matched with strengths within range of their own as well. Not sure what you're getting at there.

    Apologies for assuming someone so adamantly against implementing the fix to a broken system wouldn’t be someone suffering from the potential short term draw backs. Good for you sticking up for cheats and lucky alliances!
    Also, you neglected to read “or just getting lucky” part, as in lucky matchups and progressing through no fault of their own, way to take offense though! 😝

    I’m sorry I try so hard to not let him draw me in. I’ll stop now🤐
